Peace and Solitude

Peace and Solitude


If you’re looking for real peace and solitude explore north Northumberland. You can enjoy mile after mile of sandy beaches with castles such as Bamburgh, Royal Seat of the Kings of Northumbria, as your backdrop. 64km of the coastline from Berwick-upon-Tweed in the north down to the Coquet Estuary is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is home to numerous seabird colonies. Explore bustling market towns like Seahouses or Bewick with its fortified walls and fascinating military history. 

If you are exploring Northumberland in your touring caravan Glororum Caravan Park tucked in tranquil countryside is just a few minutes drive from Bamburgh. On site there is a launderette, dishwashing and food preparation area and new shower and toilet block with baby change area. Children will love the extensive play area.

Ford & Etal is a hidden gem of Northumberland, a privately-owned rural estate in the foothills of the Cheviots. Offering a range of all-weather attractions and activities including steam railway, heavy horse centre, famous battlefield, Victorian Cornmill, picture-postcard villages, quirky tearooms and stunning scenery there’s something for every age and interest.

Boasting an impressive collection of over 450 cottages Northumbria Coast & Country Cottages has something for everyone, whether it’s a romantic bolt-hole for two or a larger property ideal for a group of up to 12 people. Many of their cottages are dog friendly, so all the family can enjoy a holiday in Northumberland.
